Hobbytown Exclusives In-Store Now!

Hobbytown Exclusives In-Store Now!

It turns out that where I thought that the Hobbytown in Little Rock was closed at some point, it actually was just relocated, and Google Maps didn’t update their data. So, seeing as I was halfway there for another errand today, I decided to drop by and confirm a juicy rumor I’d heard… namely that […]

Build: 30 Rockefeller Plaza

Build: 30 Rockefeller Plaza

I just couldn’t help myself. This building just demanded that I go a little silly with the staging of the size-comparison photo with Lego Chewie. And then it demanded that I make it black and white. So… deal with it. I know that some people like to just do the challenging models. And I do […]

58 Models Added to Retiring Status

58 Models Added to Retiring Status

It is with sadness that I report that Metal Earth has chosen to start retiring a whole heap of models, the bulk of which is almost the entire line of Legends models. Now, I know there’s quite a few of you builders out there who think of the Legends line as a bit of a […]

Build: Black Panther

Review Build: ICONX Imperial Star Destroyer

Does this model really need an introduction? I mean, come on, it’s so iconic! And now it’s finally ICONX, too! Okay, sorry, sorry, sorry! I’m a dad, what do you expect? Dad jokes come with the package. Anyways, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to build this model, and amazingly enough, Fascinations sent me one […]

Build: The Kennedy Center

Build: The Kennedy Center

Completing the Kennedy Center model brings me closer to covering the last of the currently discontinued models. Metal Earth doesn’t have an easy way to find out which models have been discontinued (wouldn’t it be nice if they had an “archive” or “museum” section on their website), you just have to browse their list of […]

Log Truck and Trailer

Log Truck and Trailer

On top of building these models, I also enjoy trying to find fun ways of staging the models in creative ways. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. The fun I have doing this is actually what got me involved in the #MetalEarthFam on Instagram (and creating an Instagram account in the first place). So […]
